Over Eggs-Cited About Easter

I'm just your typical average Mom. I do my best to create traditions. I want my children to have stories when they get older, just like the ones I tell today. With that said, I have to admit, I sometimes over do it during the holidays.

I don't buy a lot of presents. My children have plenty, and I also think it's healthy for them to hear the word "no" once in a while. But as for decorations... I can't help myself.

The meter runs like it's on steroids during Christmas. The unending strings of lights attached to the windows, the porch, the trees, the children. They're everywhere.

Valentines Day is fabulous. Everything turns pink. I mean everything. Love is in the air.

As for St. Patty's Day. Well, our last name is Brennan. Need I say more.

So now it's Easter. And what do you think I did? Well, I rushed to the grocery store of course, and bought four dozen eggs.

Did I mention I only have 2 children?

That's right. Somewhere in the depths of my mind I believed that my two boys had the patience to spend their Easter searching for 48 eggs.

The sadder part. I almost bought more.

I can't help myself. I just love the holidays. I can't wait till Memorial Day!

I also love Easter Sundays, and i've also started a tradition of hiding eggs and giving each of my kids (i have 3) clues that will lead them to the eggs. It's so much fun and they look forward to it every year!

I think that first comment is a scammer.

four dozen...real eggs? You are too funny!

Enjoy your Easter!

The scary part is that two boys can actually handle 48 eggs and ask for more to hunt! LOL! I am with you on establishing traditions for my boys. Traditions provide a layer of richness to life even reduced circumstances:)

I applaud your energy. I used to decorate for all the holidays (not as elabaorately as you've describede), but now I'm pretty much down to Christmas. And even that is getting to be a hassle. I've lost my motivation.

I thought my egg hiding days were over...but my 27 year-old school teacher daughter has informed me that she wants to HUNT eggs on Sunday! So I guess I'll be prancing around the backyard with a big basket of eggs, trying to find good hiding places!
